      I don’t want to be that guy, but they’d make a really cute couple!

      I’m not saying that I’m right, I’m saying that I don’t get it:
      Why do people stay living in an area that hates them?

      @Fitz: Because, just like everyone else, their lives include ties to the good parts of their community, their family and their friends. Now, gay Catholics, that’s one I don’t get at all.

      I think the point of the story is how awesome some people can be. We all have been through some kind of homophobia,so to see what this man did for a member of our community,is wonderful.This story made my day! And..of course,Ellen is the bomb!

      @The Real Mike in Asheville: @Fitz: Mike is absolutely right. There are good and bad people everywhere, but a small community provides a much different experience. I’ve made the closest friends I will ever have living in a very small community that has had a reputation for being very unwelcoming. But you are who you are, haters gonna hate, and life goes on. You have to focus on the good. Chances are, the whole community is not going to hate one person, all together in unison.

      Those who see the good in others will rise to the top and it is easier to do so in a small town.
